Protecting Older Americans
May is Older Americans Month. Seniors across the United States lose $3 billion each year to scams and fraud. During May, Forensic Security & Protection is offering free 30-minute safety workshops for seniors to help protect against identity theft, fraud, and other harm, and who to contact in the event of any instances of fraud. We will also offer advice on how to be alert and aware of your surroundings.
During May, we will also offer free initial consultations to senior living facilities and community centers on prevention of workplace violence, policies, and procedures, as well as physical security.
After a tragic event, many organizations contact their local police department for safety and security advice. Unlike law enforcement agencies, who are tasked with conducting an investigation after the incident, our company has expertise in preventing an incident.
In light of the recent shooting at Parkland High School in Florida, Forensic Security & Protection is offering a free initial consultation, as well as training to schools, churches, and other community organizations in preventing an attack.
In Pennsylvania, members of the Antietam Valley Citizens Watch are asking the local police department for help with starting a neighborhood watch group. (Duran, C., 2017, September. Central Berks Police to aid citizens watch group. Reading Eagle. Retrieved from http://www.readingeagle.com)
Although this approach sounds promising, the research suggests that these types of community surveillance initiatives are ineffective at reducing crime. As Certified Protection Professionals, Forensic Security & Protection, LLC can assist your community in achieving real crime prevention results.
